Before I came to HackerYou I was working on an MA in English. I was planning on continuing to a PhD, but part-way through I found that I wanted to make a career change. I stumbled on coding and started looking into my options. I originally planned to do another degree, but quickly learned that there were a lot of roadblocks to that because of course decisions that I had made years ago in high school. Then I learned about HackerYou, and began to consider a bootcamp instead.
Attending HackerYou's Web Development Immersive was the best decision I've made. I had been looking into the program for a couple of years, and was working in retail to save money to attend. I thought I was still a couple of years off from going, but last year they announced a financing option for which I was approved which allowed me to attend. I was a little bit nervous about financing the program at first, particularly since I have lots of student loan debt from my previous education. However, the results for my career made it completely worth taking out the loan. I have a great job as a web developer, and I'm super excited about all the opportunities for career growth that are available to me now.
The learning environment at HackerYou is wonderful. Everyone is so helpful and supportive. The teaching is top notch, and everyone is excited to be there even when the course material gets tough. There is also lots of extracurricular support and help outside of the bootcamp hours. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take part in much of it, as I was commuting a total of 5hrs a day to attend, but it's awesome that they offered so much help.
I really appreciate that they work to keep the curriculum up to date with current and in-demand skills. I use the skills I learned everyday, and look back on the notes all the time. When we first started learning React, it felt super intense for such a short program, but I'm really glad that they include it. I found it was a very helpful framework to have on my resume, and it's also great for making any apps that I think up in my spare time.
The bootcamp is an intense program, but it is designed in such a way that students are set up for success rather than failure. I found this super refreshing after coming from academia. I also found that while the rigorous application process was stressful, it created a phenomenal group of students, all of whom were super passionate and excited about being there.
The job support after you finish is what truly set it apart from my other educational experiences. Heather offers so much support, and was amazing about answering job hunt related questions whenever I had them. It would have been much more difficult to make the career change without her.
I have spent most of my adult life attending higher education, and I feel that HackerYou was hands down the best educational experience I've had. If you are looking to make a career change into Web Development, I can't recommend the program enough.

I recently graduated from Hackeryou's Web Immersive program. The experience has been exceptional. All the staff are extremely knowledgeable and supportive. Same goes with all my fellow classmates. I never would have imagined making such great friends in such a short amount of time.
The first step that I took was to take the part time Intro and Advanced Web Development courses on the weekends. Shortly after I finished those courses, I started the 9-week Web Development Immersive Program. One of my reasons to go to HackerYou was because a friend of mine who is an alumnus of HY had recommended the school to me. The other reason was because I heard HY was the best there is went it comes to teaching web development.
If you are brand new or have little experience with web development, I highly recommend taking one of the part time web development courses to start with. It’ll build a solid foundation and you’ll see if the new career path is right for you.
Long story short, HY took me from playing around with HTML and CSS as a hobby to a full time employed front end developer in less than one year. I couldn't be happier with the choice I made with attending HY.
I’m brand new to coding. Where should I start?
If you’re looking to learn how to code, we recommend our part-time Web Development Fundamentals & Advanced Web Development courses. These are designed for complete beginners. You’ll start by learning the very basics of HTML, CSS, and responsive web design. By the end of the Advanced course, you’ll be able to code a responsive multi-page website entirely from scratch!
Do you offer any form of financial aid?
Students who complete our part-time Intro to Web Development course are eligible to receive a $1,500 scholarship if accepted to the Web Development Immersive program! Students who also complete Advanced Web Development are eligible for an additional $500 scholarship. On top of that if accepted to the Web Development Immersive, students who have taken any of our other part-time Intro courses are eligible to receive a $500 scholarship, and an additional $500 scholarship for taking the Advanced course. If you’ve taken both the part-time Web Development courses and another set of part-time courses – you can combine your scholarships and receive $3,000+ off the program. Other than that, we don’t offer any internal forms of financial aid, grants or scholarships. Our friends at Borrowell and Financeit do provide personal loans to HackerYou students enrolled in part-time courses and full-time courses, though!
Do you offer payment plans?
Due to the competitive nature of our programs, we normally aren’t able to offer payment plans. However, if a student has a specific situation, we’ll always do our best to accommodate.
When is my tuition due?
For all of our part-time courses, a deposit of $1000 plus HST is due immediately upon registration to secure your spot in the course. The remaining balance is then due two weeks before the program begins. Tuition MUST be paid in full before the program starts in order to gain access to course resources including course notes. For our Web Development Immersive, 50% of tuition is due immediately upon acceptance into the program, plus a $100 registration fee. The remaining 50% is due two weeks before the program begins.
Does HackerYou qualify for OSAP?
Not yet! Private Career Colleges must be in operation for 2 years before students are eligible to apply for OSAP. Our Web Development Immersive was only registered as an approved program under the Private Career College Act 2005 in December 2016. Please note that when we are OSAP-eligible, it will only be for our full-time program and not part-time courses. If you’re employed and interested in taking a part-time course with us, we’ve partnered with Borrowell, who offer personal loans to students enrolled in our part-time courses.
Is my tuition tax deductible?
As a registered Private Career College in Ontario, we provide T2202a forms for students who complete the Web Development Immersive program. For students who completed this program before January 2017, we cannot retroactively issue T2202a forms. Unfortunately, due to our standing as a Private Career College, we cannot provide a tax form for any of our part-time courses, as they are not diploma or certificate programs. For more information on Ontario’s Private Career Colleges, check out the Private Career Colleges Act 2005.
Do you provide certificates upon completion of one of your courses?
Students who complete the Full-Time Web Development Immersive program will receive a certificate. We do not provide certificates for our part-time courses. We’re happy to provide documentation of completion for part-time courses, however, if required by your employer.
Do you accept International Students?
Yes, we do and have accepted international students to our programs in the past. Students applying to the Web Development Immersive with a non-Canadian postsecondary diploma must have their degrees assessed as equivalent to a Canadian postsecondary diploma or degree by a recognized assessment service. HackerYou does not require you to have a particular type of visa in order to attend due to the length of our programs. For more information, you can learn more about being a Visitor to Canada on the Citizenship and Immigration CanadaWebsite. If you wish to stay and work in Canada after the program, please note that HackerYou is unable to assist students in obtaining a Canadian Working Visa. We encourage prospective Web Development Immersive students to look into the process before applying to the program as to not delay your job hunt upon completion of the program.
